Singing Attempts with Dad
"Ranjish hi sahiiiiIeeieieie" I croak.
"Ouch", my dad nicely encourages her only daughter's (non) singing abilities.
"What dad? That was not in sur kya?", I ask. Yep, accepting a hint is not my forte.
"Oh of course it was in sur...just not the Right one!", Dad grins
"Yeah whatever dad, I'm gonna practise it till I get it right," I retort, with a stubborn determination on my face. At the same time, there's a look of absolute horror on my dad's visage, as if someone told him to eat mouldy bread, with blue spots of fungus as prominent as Bush's stupidity.
"Why dont we do something Else in our Father-daughter time?"he says, trying his best to save himself at the last minute.
"Nooo dad, now u have to listen and tell me when I get it right," I insist. Its funny you know, I'm not really as dumb as I might seem sometimes. For Real..I'm not kidding...Seriously. Argh..Fine Dont belv me! But what i'm getting at is that, I usually see signs of people trying to not make me do something. Well, this time it was my own dad, and even though i saw signs, I just carried on. Yeah, call me spoilt, but thats how it was.
So I went on. "Ranjish hIieeIIIeee saheieiii", and that hurt my own ears, so I very nicely just put a finger on one ear.
"That is SO unfair,"my dad pipes up, " you put a finger on your own ear, and Expect ME to listen!"
I laugh. And then ignore him and go on. My eyes closed, full concentration, hands moving like those singers I see in Saregamapa.
2 mins later, i open my eyes, and look at my dad for...ahem...Compliments.
The only thing is, My dad's not there. He's in the other room, nicely talking to my mom...while I shatter some glass in the neighbour's house.
Sigh, I guess you cant just annoy anyone you want. Not even your own dad! He just walks away!!

Oh well! You're competing with me now. To take it on a lighter note, I invite you to a glass-breaking competition the next time you visit India. :-)

Cheers,

Your post shows the significance of a "living-in" partner who can not only bear your songs but also give you CC...
